The Misfit of Demon King Academy, titled in Japanese as Maō Gakuin no Futekigōsha, is an Isekai anime that aired last year, and fans of the Isekai genre will be happy to receive news that the television anime series has been billed for a second season.
A NEW SEASON
During Kadokawa’s special Light Novel Expo, Shu’s The Misfit of Demon King Academy: History’s Strongest Demon King Reincarnates and Goes to School With His Descendants (Maō Gakuin no Futekigōsha ~Shijō Saikyō no Maō no Shiso, Tensei Shite Shison-tachi no Gakkō e Kayō) original light novel series has been confirmed to return for a second season.

Silver Link will be returning to direct the second season and we hope they keep up with the spectacular job done on the first season. This second season has been confirmed to run for two cours of episodes (doubling the single cour order for the first season).
The first season was originally scheduled for an April 2020 premiere but was delayed to July due to the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic affecting the production schedule.
An announcement teaser and key visual for the upcoming season have been released, however, there is no information regarding the premiere date. The first season consisted of 13 episodes and premiered on Tokyo MX, Tochigi TV, Gunma TV, BS11, and AT-X on July 4 at 11:30 pm. The series streamed in Japan on d Anime Store (Docomo Anime Store) beginning on July 4. Crunchyroll began streaming the anime with English subtitles in North America on July 4.
ABOUT THE SERIES
The Misfit of Demon King Academy was among the better magical anime that premiered in 2020– combining harem, fantasy, adventure, and romance into a blend of hope and love. Check out my review of the first season here.
The television anime series is adapted from the light novel series written by Shu and illustrated by Yoshinori Shizuma. Shu launched the novel series on the Shōsetsu ni Narō website in April 2017. Kadokawa is publishing the novels with illustrations by Yoshinori Shizuma and it published the seventh volume on July 10. Kayaharuka‘s manga adaptation launched in July 2018 on Square Enix‘s Manga Up! website and Square Enix published the third volume on October 10.
